Chant, Polyphony, the Works

A fantastic performance by the choristers of St. Stephen the First Martyr Parish of Sacramento, California, USA, under the direction of Jeffrey Morse. The Mass ordinary is Victoria's MISSA AVE MARIS STELLA and the offertory is Parson's AVE MARIA (5 parts).

The glorious vessel of the extraordinary form makes plenty of room for the music.
